Malakoff Organises Motivational

Seminar for UPSR Students in Mukim Serkat

Malakoff Corporation Berhad (Malakoff), a member of MMC Group, held a motivational talk and examination seminar for UPSR students in Mukim Serkat called “Program Kecemerlangan UPSR” at Tanjung Piai Resort, Johor.


The objective of the seminar was to better prepare USPR students for their upcoming examinations. 156 Standard 6 pupils together with their parents, respective School Principals and their teaching staff from seven primary schools in Mukim Serkat attended the seminar.

The seven primary schools involved were Sekolah Kebangsaan Sungai Durian, Sekolah Kebangsaan Serkat, Sekolah Kebangsaan Andek Mori, Sekolah Kebangsaan Permas Kelapa, Sekolah Kebangsaan Seri Sinaran Chokoh, Sekolah Kebangsaan Sungai Boh and Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan (Cina) Pei Chiao.

Speaking of the seminar, Dato’ Ahmad Fuaad Kenali, Chief Executive Officer of Malakoff believed that the programme would boosts student confidence and motivate them to work harder to prepare for their UPSR in September.

“Our on-going educational programmes for the students demonstrate our commitment to our corporate social responsibility for the local communities where we operate. We believe education is key to development, that is why we are putting in our efforts to help these students to do better in their studies,” he added.

Throughout the three-day seminar, the students were taught on time management, study tips, methods on answering questions and other exam-related techniques.

Parents of the UPSR students were encouraged to attend on the last day of the seminar, so that they could continue motivating their children post-event. As preparing for a major examination could be quite stressful on the young ones, parents were reminded to continuously support their children in order for them to cope with the pressure.


The seminar was part of a series of education initiatives planned for schools in Mukim Serkat this year. Earlier in April, Malakoff launched “Jom Sarap” at these schools to provide the school children with nutritious breakfast to improve their focus in class and also to encourage them to come early to school.
